The Intractable Problem of Software Security

  • Webcast Aired Friday, 24 May 2013 1:00PM EDT (24 May 2013 17:00 UTC)
  • Speaker: Chris Wysopal

We all know that applications are inherently insecure, yet some of the highest profile breaches in 2012 were the result of easily remediated coding flaws. These flaws persist in almost all the software that runs most websites and businesses; SQL injection alone affects 32% of web applications. If the current state of software security is any indication, we'll continue to hear about major data breaches in 2013 and beyond.

Join Chris Wysopal, Veracode's Co-Founder and CTO, as he discusses the current and future state of appsec. He will dive into the data that drive the predictions detailed in the Veracode's fifth annual State of Software Security Report. This report pulls data from tens of thousands of live application scans performed on the Veracode Platform.

On this webinar, you'll learn why Veracode believes we'll see the following dynamics in the near future:

  • Higher turn-over rates for CISOs and security professionals.
  • The rise of the everyday hacker.
  • Default data encryption for mobile communications.

But we'll also offer up ideas to change the future by providing guidance on building a meaningful application security program and ensuring developer buy-in. Don't miss your opportunity to change your company's future too!
